I have never met someone with worse bedside manner than Dr. Altman. You can tell he has an enormous ego and even though he asks you questions, he immediately cuts you off. I think all my responses got out 2-3 words then he didn't want to hear anything more I had to say. When your child is your life you expect better communication. I also comments he isn't an expert on the stuff you go to him for (after). And you get zero prior warning when talking to staff on WHY you need to come in. Stay away.
